Daisy Jones and The Six

Adapted from Taylor Jenkins Reid’s best-selling novel of the same name, and starring Riley Keough and Sam Claflin, Daisy Jones and The Six on Prime Video follows free spirited musician Daisy Jones who’s raised by wealthy, neglectful parents in LA in the 1970s.

Daisy befriends older disco star Simone, who encourages her to pursue a career in music. She’s eventually signed by manager Hank Allen, who later becomes her boyfriend, and then by Runner Records. She eventually joins band The Six, and the new group changes their name to Daisy Jones & The Six.

The show was shot all across LA, including along the famous drag Sunset Strip, which was shut down for filming. Ahead, we share some of the other Daisy Jones and The Six filming locations so that, if you enjoyed the show and are heading to the City of Angels anytime soon, you can add them to your visit list.
